TNR editor says award to TNR proves National Magazine Awards are a joke

The New Republic
Jonathan Chait says writers tend to be both obsessed with who wins the National Magazine Awards and convinced the process is a pathetic joke. "This isn't just sour grapes, either," writes The New Republic senior editor. "The last time The New Republic won a National Magazine Award, it was for publishing Betsy McCaughey's infamous anti-Clintoncare screed 'No Exit,' which is probably the worst article in the history of TNR. It's as if the last American to win the Nobel Peace Prize was Timothy McVeigh."
